Episode Quotes
Brittany Pierce: [to the camera] My name is Brittany S. Pierce and I finally know how Jesus feels in his house way up at the North Pole because I am on top of the world. Senior year was awesome and now I get to relive every minute of it. I'm Head Cheerio, Vice Rachel of the glee club and now I'm planning a Middle East-style sham election that will install me as senior class president for life.
Blaine Anderson: Brittany, who are you talking to?
Brittany Pierce: I thought I was doing a voiceover.

Cassandra July: [to Rachel] Maria von Trapp, Willy Loman, Shrek: Those are the roles that are appropriate for your level of sex appeal.
